Founded by Vince Lazzara, Gulfstar was a manufacturer of powerboats and sailboats based out of Florida.
The company went through three distinct phases. In the early years, they built low-cost sail and power boats. Starting in the mid-to-late '70s, they had a substantial step up in quality and built mostly sailboats. In the mid-80s their focus shifted more towards power boats.
In 1990, Gulfstar was purchased by Viking Yachts.
